Although there are still many things we want to do and improve, we feel that we had to start by creating a strong consensus among us, and a sense of belonging. We feel confident that, because we are united, it is only a matter of time before our goals are achieved. Even though our community may struggle to maintain and harmonious environment, the positive side to this is that we are forced to find creative ways to overcome difficulties, while at the same time taking care of everyone, our environment and our local community without sacrificing our ideals. These are perfect conditions for spiritual evolution!
Because of global warming and other environmental problems, we believe that Nature will force us to evolve more consciously. In the very near future, we might experience drastic changes due to dangerous consequences of our society’s comfortable way of life and over-consumption. By simple living and high thinking, we try to prepare ourselves for something else: a green, peaceful, supportive, democratic way of life. We are working on it full time!
